We’ve been great fans of ‘The Duchess of Oysterville’, the first outing from the duo of Chris Forsyth & Nate Wooley on cd some years ago on Creative Sources (with a follow-up later on Chocolate Monk), and had been looking for an opportunity to work with them if possible. Their duo is one of those cases that reveal different and unexpected qualities from the participants, and points to a third mind of shorts at play, a meeting that seems to open up the two towards an underexplored territory. With a palette consisting of guitar and trumpet, they make together music that often focuses on an ugly/beautiful scorched earth territory of hissing subtlety. ‘Third’ was recorded live in concert on March 16, 2013 in Philadelphia and mastered by Bhob Rainey.

Chris Forsyth is a lauded guitarist and composer whose work often assimilates art-rock textures with vernacular American influences.  Long active in underground circles, he’s recently released a string of acclaimed records of widescreen guitar rock, including 2014’s Intensity Ghost (No Quarter) that have brought his music to the attention of a wider audience. Forsyth first became active in the experimental scene in the 2000s as a founding member of the unclassifiable experimentalists Peeesseye (w/ Fritz Welch & Jaime Fennelly).  He’s also collaborated with Tetuzi Akiyama, Nate Wooley, Shawn Hansen, Koen Holtkamp, Chris Heenan, and choreographer Miguel Gutierrez.  He is a recipient of a 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts and resides in Philadelphia.

New York based trumpeter Nate Wooley has performed on over 100 recordings. Increasingly acknowledged internationally, Wooley’s specific style is part of a burgeoning revolution in experimental trumpet technique with the likes of improvisers Evan Parker, John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and Thurston Moore. His own compositions expand conceptions of linguistic based embouchure manipulation and utilize the trumpet to control amplified feedback.
